RESOLVED: SAVE THE PASEO ACTIVISTS TARNISHED VICTORY WITH PROTEST INSIDE OF KANSAS CITY CHURCH!!!
For a brief shining moment, the "Save The Paseo" movement was a shining example of Kansas City grassroots voter activism.
Volunteers valiantly opposed KCMO political power players and mainstream opinion.
The group assembled a diverse coalition in order to create a consensuses across demographic lines.
Their victory achieved a stunning endorsement of the citizen initiative process and the power of voters against corrupt, insider deals at City Hall.
However . . .
SAVE THE PASEO ACTIVISTS DISGRACED THEMSELVES AND THEIR CAUSE WHEN THEY PROTESTED INSIDE THE CHURCH OF THE OPPOSITION!!!
There is no reasonable argument from any legitimate source defending this action.
Northeast News helped Save The Paseo immensely and even their recent op/ed attempts to quickly ignore and obfuscate the offensive action and refocus on the otherwise notable achievement.
"While the Save The Paseo group’s choice to stand in the aisles may not have been the best choice, peacefully demonstrating at a rally is a time-honored form of protest for social justice and public policy issues."
WRONG!!! THE BLACK COMMUNITY SANCTUARY DESERVES RESPECT AND MILITANT SAVE THE PASEO ORGANIZERS PLACED THEIR PETTY POLITICS OVER COMMON DECENCY AND RELIGIOUS LIBERTY!!!
It's a testament to the ongoing decline of Western Civilization and the current climate of American hyper-partisan divisiveness that we must remind people to remain respectful of other faiths even amid fervent political disagreement.
Put simply and for future reference that is far more important than this ongoing street fight grudge match . . .
EVEN IF THE SANCTUARY SHARES DISAGREEABLE IDEAS: POLITICAL ACTIVISTS SHOULD STAY OUT OF CHURCH IF THEY CAN'T BEHAVE RESPECTFULLY!!!
During this tumultuous year churches, mosques and synagogues have been targeted across the globe by terrorists. The current climate of fear should evoke more respect from Kansas City voters on a topic where the real world street sign stakes are so low.
Sadly, we've seen that the "winning" side has given in to the same chest-thumping and obstinate tactics of the power players they claim to oppose.
As always, the new boss is just as bad as the old boss in the world of politics.
Congressman Cleaver's bold sour grapes "Save The Paseo" Klan comparison evoked ire across Kansas City that was always accompanied by touting the righteous election aims of the Save The Paseo group whilst ignoring their DISGUSTING SACRILEGE IN A HOUSE OF WORSHIP.
Regardless of politics or demographic lines, we pray that blasphemous Save The Paseo activists who desecrated the urban core church will atone for their sins and seek reconciliation.
Meanwhile, the noble aims of petitioners and their commendable work to encourage good government has been corrupted by their shameful tactics and stubborn defense of an attack on the sacred 1st Amendment freedom of religion.
